Manatee’s in Parrish, FL

FPL-Manatee-PMT Cooling Pond Swale Improvements

This job consisted of removing organic material and existing sand from approximately 10,000 Linear Feet of cooling pond swale for improvements to the surrounding environments. Dewatering was required to remove excess water before and after the muck was removed. Fresh filter course sand material was then placed in the prepared swale and graded and sloped to allow for proper drainage. ¬†Work was accomplished with success and without incident in an ‘exclusion zone’ of a high hazard dam. This project was completed in the best interests of gentle giants found in Florida’s warm coastal waters.
